In an effort at developing active microbial strains that could be of relevance in bioremediation of petroleum contaminated systems in Nigeria, fifteen hydrocarbon degrading bacteria and fungal species were isolated from three bitumen deposits. The predominant species belonged to the genera Pseudomonas and Aspergillus. The ability of Pseudomomnas stutzeri, Pseudomonas mullei and Alcaligenes sp. to degrade naphthalene, kerosene and diesel was studied. The results show maximal increase in optical… CONTINUE READING
